Successful CENTRIC event at SRIEE 2017 in Tallinn

On November 14th and 15th the CENTRIC team attended the 2017 Security Research, Innovation and Education event (SRIEE 2017) in Tallin, Estonia.

The Security Research Conference, organised by the European Commission, had two high-level panels focusing on “Conveying the future needs of Practitioners to the Research Community” and on “The future of security research.

As part of our seventh anniversary celebrations, CENTRIC held its own panel event on the second day of the event by showcasing the impact of its research funded by the European Commission and DG Home. The session introduced CENTRIC and demonstrated its real impact on security in terms of research, technological capabilities, and expanding the knowledge of security stakeholders in their mission to protect the citizens of the EU. The event consisted of two panels; Are the risks of cybercrime being taken seriously? and What are the emerging threats to developing successful counter-terrorism strategies?.

As part of the conference the CENTRIC team offered conference attendees a demo of our virtual reality projects, AUGGMED and ATLAS, at the CENTRIC exhibition stand. The team also provided a wide range of information to many attendees about all of┬áCENTRIC’s projects and capabilities.

Feedback from the event was excellent and CENTRIC is extremely grateful to its external colleagues that attended the event and provided an outstanding contribution to the panel discussion.
